    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45.

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45.

  • Letter: No on 1 is Falmouth's real gamble

    Voting yes on Question 1 provides Falmouth with an invaluable chance to shape our future. As a former town councilor, I am surprised by the tone and position of some of the opponents of Question 1 in Falmouth, many of whom I normally consider to have sound business judgment and strong community...

    I lived in Falmouth for 25 years, and my long relationship with Falmouth Memorial Library began when my family first visited the library in 1981.

  • Letter: Maine should warn cell phone users

    My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of 34. Two weeks ago we testified at our state capital to get warning labels on cell phones in Maine. I have researched this for a little over a year now and I am disgusted with what has been hidden from the public. It is a shame the Energy, ...

  • Letter: Falmouth teacher urges vote wisely

    In classrooms at the elementary level every day we encourage our children to be caring citizens that work on problems in cooperative ways as they are learning and working. We encourage them to treat each other respectfully even when they are angry or feel they have been wronged. We discourage unn...

  • Letter: East End developer deserves scrutiny

    The India Street Neighborhood Association has very good reason to be skeptical of any pledge by Village at Oceangate principal Demetri Dansco. He claims his company has heard the concerns of the neighbors and is "100 percent determined to make a positive impact on the neighborhood by doing a bett...

  • Letter: Andrews for Falmouth School Board

    I am very happy to give my support to Jan Andrews for Falmouth School Board. My interactions with Jan over the last few years have shown her to be a very level-headed, thoughtful person, willing to consider viewpoints other than her own. And I have no doubt she will bring those traits to the Fal...
